In a lawsuit pending in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California, a homeowner plaintiff representing herself is suing Bank of America over the foreclosure of her home. The bank brought a motion to dismiss the complaint, and the Court granted the motion; The judge’s decision contained this chestnut: “Finally, plaintiff alleges: “Bank of America and Countrywide is [ sic ] … taking advantage of me, a mentally disabled person who is collecting food stamps and has Medi-Cal to help pay for my medical expenses.” FN7. The undersigned (the judge) intended to question plaintiff about her alleged mental illness at the hearing. However, plaintiff made such an inquiry impossible by failing to appear.”
